Lynn Roberts, David Roberts
This highly imaginative and unusual spin on the Little Red Riding Hood is set in the late eighteenth century – a time of big wigs, satin gowns, powdered faces and wicked highwaymen!
Illustrated by David Roberts, of Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer fame, Little Red is the story of a boy, a grandmother, a big bad wolf, and a keg of delicious ginger beer.
Young Thomas is known as Little Red. He lives with his parents in a cosy inn, famous for its sweet and fizzy ginger beer. Every week, Little Red visits his grandmother with food and a barrel of the ginger beer. But on this visit, grandma doesn’t quite look herself. Can Little Red save Grandma, and himself, from the big bad wolf?
